FRACKVILLE, Pa. (AP) - Pennsylvania state police are looking for a man who they say beat a woman in a wooded area of Schuylkill County over the weekend.

The 31-year-old woman was with a 4-year-old child when police said 34-year-old Christopher Benjamin repeatedly beat her and threatened her life if she left the woods in West Mahanoy Township.

The woman managed to reach a road and get help from neighbors.

Police say the woman was treated for serious injuries.

Benjamin is wanted on aggravated assault charges.
